Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
When my 3 kids were growing up we had a family band which played alot around Okla.I never picked much back then but am trying to do it now.I was rhythm and kids were the pickers. I'm slow but I am working on it.I booked the bands for The Davis Bluegrass Festival which was an event to aid underpriveledged kids in our county.I learned the hearts of the bluegrass crowd through this. I try to turn on anyone I can to flatpicking, especially the old fiddle tunes.
My name is Dave Blakeslee. I'm working on the website for Preston's 'new' guitar business. Do you think I could get a photo of your Thompson HD28 to publish on the 'history' portion of the website?
The website, by the way, is www.pkthompsonguitars.com.
